Brentford boss Andy Scott has completed the signing of Millwall midfielder Marc Laird on loan until February 1.
The 24-year-old Scot joined the Lions in 2008 from Manchester City and has gone on to make 92 appearances for the south London club, netting seven goals.
Laird has found first-team football hard to come by at the Den this campaign though, having only featured twice.
Scott told the club's official website: "With David Hunt having moved on to Crawley I felt we needed to strengthen the midfield area.
"Marc brings with him a wealth of experience at this level having achieved promotion with Millwall from League One last season and I think he will comfortably fit into our squad."
Meanwhile, on-loan goalkeeper Ben Hamer has returned to parent-club Reading after the completion of his deal and Simon Moore is back with the Bees after his loan spell at Basingstoke came to an end.
